Racing pigeon auctions for $1.4 million

By  | 

You've seen them on the streets, in the parks, it seems like pigeons are pretty much everywhere. So how much do you think one is worth?

How about seven figures.

Armando is a Belgian racing pigeon that recently sold at auction in China for $1.4 million.

He's apparently considered the best long-distance racing pigeon ever, and his price tag was the result of an hour's long bidding war between two buyers.
